About 120 members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Bugya Pala community in the Walewale Constituency in the North East Region have defected to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In a statement, the Deputy Regional Secretary of the NPP in the North East Region, Ibrahim Yamusah said the move was as a result of the good developmental projects that the New Patriotic Party was executing in the constituency.
It all started when Chief Paabobadana had a dream to move his family from the NDC to the NPP.
Below is the full statement:

This was a revelation, he said all my family are now part and parcel of the elephant fraternity and there is no way we will retreat to the vindictive and wicked party that drailed us so long in poverty and darkness.
The spokes person of the defectors Mr Seidu Jabuni Francis (054 518 2208), a nurse by profession, said that their decision to join the NPP is very clear and with no ambiguity. The massive development within the three (3)years of President Nana Akuffo Addo and Vice president Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia government is very promising.The ruling government has done far better than the NDC administration especially the numerous social interventions like the NABCO, forestry, Free Senior high School which our brothers and sisters and friends are enjoying,this gave the poor access to secondary education,the massive educational infrastructure,portable water,roads, electricity and so forth.Walewale to Bugyia Pala road was created by his execellency President kuffour.It was deteriorated and not accessible in 2012.NDC never boarded to fit the road.So far so good the NPP government has awarded the road to a contractor called Alhaji Janda.Work is seriously ongoing.We have reasoned deep and will not go back to our slumber.
